Longest Night — from darkness to light — Bring your cares to the Lord: This is an event to be held in the church of St Alphonse this Wednesday, 18th December, beginning with a service of prayer at 12:30, a prayer-space around the altar will be available for those who wish to drop in and pray during the day and evening. You will have a chance to write your worries, cares and prayer requests and fix them to the cross. There will be prayer aides/suggestions available also. The usual weekday Mass takes place at the side altar at 18:15, then the Longest Night celebration finishes with a simple evening prayer at 19:00. Do take this opportunity to spend time in silence and prayer amidst the bustle of the city. All welcome!
